The Leibniz Institute for Jewish History and Culture – Simon Dubnow (DI) is dedicated to interdisciplinary research across multiple eras of Jewish life worlds in Central and Eastern Europe, from the Middle Ages through to the present. This research adopts a pan-European perspective and includes areas of Jewish emigration, especially Israel as well as North and Latin America.
Through events, university courses, and a broad range of publications, the research findings are presented both to a specialist audience and the interested public. This includes the internationally renowned bilingual »Jahrbuch des Dubnow-Instituts/Dubnow Institute Yearbook«; the essay series »toldot«, and the magazine »Jüdische Geschichte & Kultur«. On the blog »Mimeo,« scholars offer an overview of their current research projects. The special collection of the institute library is also open to students and guests.
The Leibniz Institute for Jewish History and Culture – Simon Dubnow (DI) offers up to five fellowships to external researchers for a visit in Leipzig during the academic year 2022/23. The fellowship’s duration is one to three months.
